Gooey Orange Bars

I think it is safe to say these were a hit for a summery bbq. They were sweet & tasty & the citrus flavor always reminds me of the sun. This Floridian girl loves oranges & what's better than orange in the form of a cookie bar?

GOOEY ORANGE BARS  adapted from Mom's Test Kitchen


  • 1/2 c butter, room temp
  • 1 c all-purpose flour
  • 1 c sugar 
Filling Ingredients:

  • 3 eggs
  • 1 & 1/2 c sugar
  • 2 navel oranges
  • 2 TBSp concentrated, frozen country (w/pulp) orange juice 
  • 1/2 c all-purpose flour
  • powdered sugar for dusting {optional}
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Grease an 8x8 pan with cooking spray.
Mix together the butter, sugar & flour for the crust in a medium bowl until well combined ~ I used my hands to mix. Spread the dough evenly into the bottom of the prepared pan. Bake for 15 minutes or until the crust is set & just
beginning to golden.

While the crust is baking, prepare the filling: in a small bowl, zest 1 of your oranges. In another small bowl, juice both oranges & concentratedm frozen orange juice. Using a mixer at medium speed, mix together the eggs, sugar, orange zest from 1 orange, orange juice from 2 oranges, and flour. 

Pour the orange mix over the baked crust and bake for an additional 30-35 minutes or until light golden brown. 

Let it cool completely. Cut into 16 bars & sift the powdered sugar over the top if desired.
